Just snagged this single at Whole Foods while I was grabbing my sandwich. Nothing too exciting here, but it must be healthy because itís organic.

A solid if unexceptional and somewhat lightweight porter. Chocolate, raisins, a touch of licorice.

Bottle. Pours red-brown with a fine-grained, smooth, cinnamon-colored head. Nose is a very light and faint coffee, maple, brown sugar, and cocoa mix. Decent enough on the tongue, with coffee and turbinado sugar notes, but very light -- easy drinking porter, good for summer or for something easy. It doesnít claim to be otherwise, so thatís OK. Finish has some whisky elements. Decently drinkable, and a nice change from motor oil impy porters.

wnoble (1251) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - AUG 29, 2013
Poura a deep clear red. Head fades to a film ring around the edge. Nose is mild chocolate, toffee, caramels, light nuts, toast. Flavor is light butter chocolate, nuts, good toffee flavor. Finishes dry and light on the palate. Good flavors but light and is lacking substance.

Very light, thin head. An very light, roasty aroma filled with malt and chocolate. Raisin flavors with light hints of coffee and chocolate. Not bad beer.

Pours cola colored. No head. Aroma of roasted malts and chocolate. Lighter than expected, but nose carries through to the taste - roasted malts up front, some bitter coffee and chocolate on the finish. Good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

CanIHave4Beers (3132) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - DEC 4, 2012
Pours a very dark brown with a small and not so well retained head.

The aroma is lots of rich chocolate, some roastiness, and a mild sweetness. This moves to a coffee kind of character as it warms.

The flavor is earthy and nicely hoppy with some mild fruit notes. The beer is mildly roasty and nicely chocolaty, the beer is sweeter than I would prefer a porter to be and as it warms it becomes a bit chalky. The more I drink it the less I like it, but itís certainly a passable porter.

Much better than the only other Butte Creek beer Iíve had, the Organic ale. This beer avoids the stale, sourness of that offering. It has a nice, smooth body, some licorice and chocolate in the flavor and a roasted aroma.
